    I bought these a few months ago, thinking the boot-like tread would be good for the winter. I wore the shoes a few times (<10) when it snowed and the traction was respectable. The shoe did fit well enough, despite being a bit on the heavy side. Unfortunately, with single-digit usage numbers, the oxfords starting falling apart. The "leather" cracked, rippped, and started peeling off the shoe. I have bought dozens of pairs of various Skechers shoes for myself and my family over the years, and had never experienced such poor quality. I hope this is an anomaly, but recent experience with most of my footwear purchases, seem to indicate a trend by the manufacturers towards creating short-term disposable shoes.

    I have had a pair of these shoes for the last 16 years (probably about 18 pair). They have always been comfortable and lasted a while considering the amount of use I would put them through. However, the last 2-3 pair really just didn't last very long at all. I was nervous after seeing all the recent bad reviews that my favorite pair of work shoes really had gone down hill and wasn't just a fluke with the ones I had. Well, I should have listened, these were awful! Not only is the new leather so hard and tough (again I know how these shoes "break in" and this is way different) I had severe blisters on my feet, but they started falling apart after two wearings! The black trim around the top had complete flaked off on one of the shoes and the other was about half gone. This was from regular use wearing it them for two days! I sit at a desk for 9 hours with frequent short distance walks (usually about 6K steps on the Fitbit) per day at work, so it's not like I was out in a construction site all day. Needless to say, I sent them back for a refund. Really disappointing in my favorite work shoes. Now I'm on the hunt for something to replace them with, but it looks like all of the Skechers Work line has really gone down in quality. Time to find a new brand I guess.

    I have purchased this same shoe design from sketchers for the last ten years. This is the first time that the "leather" has started peeling off the shoe like cheap plastic after I received them in August to replace my identical last pair that I wore out after 3 years. I have had pairs of these shoes in the past that have lasted 3-4 years and I usually wear out the sole of the heel before anything else. This is the first time I have ever encountered the leather peeling off the inside lining above the toe. The quality of this shoe fell way off.

    I have owned several pairs of these shoes and in the past they have been durable and reliable.

    The most recent pair i purchased was very shoddily made.

    The soles on my shoes have cracked after only 4 months of wear. Likewise, the outer layer of leatherette has peeled off and cracked.

    I would

    This is the second time I've purchased this shoe. The first was at least 5-10 years ago. These new versions do not even hold a candle to the older ones. First off the ring around the foot hole uses really thin fabric and it feels like a piece of plastic wrapping around your ankle. The originals had a very large, fluffy ring and were very comfortable to use. These feel like shackles. Second, they run really big now. I have my original Alley Cat's at size 12 and they fit perfectly. These size 12's are much too large.

    It's too late for me to return them so I have to eat the $50. Stay away. If you're purchasing these because you had them in the past, prepare for disappointment.

    I bought these Skechers USA Men's Alley Cat Utility Oxford,Black and they looked good when I got it. But the leather on the shoe is very thin and pieces of leather are flaking off of the shoe, after only one month. I am very unhappy that I bought these Sketcher Oxford shoes. I can not believe pieces of leather are flaking off of the shoe after only one month. Do Not buy this shoe as they are very poorly made and will not last. My last pair of work shoes lasted over one year, and these Sketcher shoes look worse after only one Month. I wish I could return these shoes and get my money back. Please look at my pictures so you can see the leather peeling off.

    You have to be careful when buying Skechers Alley Cat shoes. Any of the shiny or suede looking shoes are of poor quality. The scuff resistant Alley or Tom Cats shoes are good quality (Black or Brown), but you have to make sure they are the Scuff resistant type. I have worn these shoes for years and have 5 pairs, some are great and some are lousy. Search Amazon for Skechers Tom Cats, the Skechers Mariners (Brown) are also a decent shoe.

    The product arrived on time. It was a good fit.

    But after 3 weeks the right shoe formed a natural crease between the toes and the step. This further lead to the material cracking at the sides and bubbling of top smooth layer. This tells me that this shoe was not heat molded properly with the materials.

    I don’t use this for hard field work. But just for daily office use.

    I’m giving one stars because I expected better from a name brand and it’s lacking in quality.

    good shoes for the price

    I spent the better part of 3 weeks having bleeding feet and deep stabbing pain so if you do buy these just be very careful

    Took a few wears to break in but for a casual shoe this is expected. Now that they are broken walking in the office is comfortable and a great price for a shoe that you would pay $100.00 these shoes are a great bargin

    Ordered these a few days again. Item was exactly as described. They arrived promptly and in good condition. The shoes fit perfectly. I usually have to break shoes in, but these I don't.

    I had to break the boots in. The tang-lip was rather hard and uncompromising at first and it dug into my leg for two days.
    Afterward, all was fine. Fits well and everything now, so I can still give it a good score.

    Worst quality of shoes I've ever purchased in my life. It started peeling after 3 months. Look at picture .Don't waste your money

    Très satisfait du produit recue , jai acheter plusieurs articles sur amazon , et jai toujours été très satisfait des produits . Et la reception est toujours fait avec sourire de la pars du chauffeur .

    Je suis contente pour la rapidité de la livraison et la qualité des chaussures sauf que ils sont un peu larges. Il n'y avait pas la taille 8 us régulier.

    De excelente calidad, tengo ya casi 6 meses usándolos seguido, y aún se ven casi nuevos. Los materiales son muy buenos.

    Good shoes, may need a couple of added some comforters to feel the "walk on air" feel. A bit heavy when walking but I expected this.

    ce sont mes souliers de travail depuis des années et jamais je n'ai été déçu!

    Son muy duros y si cansa demasiado los pies, ya para el final del día después de usarlos desde temprano

    Very comfortable

    Los uso del diario y no se desgastan, super aguantadores y combinan con todo, volveré a comprarlos, sin problema con la talla y sin problemas con el envío.

    Great shoes with a perfect fit. Delivery was as promised. The only criticism I have is that the shoes are suede and not BOL. Skechers gave no instructions on how to maintain and clean.
